The Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme (CYP IAPT) is a service transformation programme that aims to improve Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and develop the workforce by recruiting professionals for core and specific skills training.

The Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) modules for this training aims to develop the specialist workforce to treat children and adolescents presenting with moderate to severe anxiety disorders and depression. The Course Tutors will run groups to enable trainees to develop skills in delivering interventions for moderate or severe anxiety and depression using CBT (in line with the guidelines of the BABCP).

We are recruiting two experienced Course Tutors (please refer to the Job Profile for working days and hours). The post-holders will facilitate the delivery of some teaching and reflective practice tutor groups to enable trainees to develop skills in delivering interventions. The Course Tutors will also contribute to teaching sessions, and undertake marking, personal tutoring and make other similar contributions to support the delivery of the programme and promote the best student experience.

The successful candidates will be mental health professionals with BABCP accreditation as CBT Practitioners. Clinical knowledge and experience of working with children, young people and families within a CAMHS or similar community setting is essential. Ideal candidates will demonstrate experience of assessing and marking coursework and providing group supervision and/or facilitating reflective spaces for mental health professionals. Please refer to the Job Profile for all role requirements.

Please email with any job enquiries, or if you require assistance or experience difficulties when applying. Please note that successful candidate(s) will be asked to evidence their Right to Work in the UK post-job offer – we do not hold a sponsor licence therefore we are unable to provide Visa sponsorship.


Hybrid working (a mixture of onsite and home/remote working). Staff are currently working onsite for at least 20% of their working hours.

For face-to-face work, the post-holders will be required to attend in person at our London office in King’s Cross (Anna Freud Centre, 4-8 Rodney Street, London N1 9JH).
